This record-breaker’s a heartbreaker. You can’t miss its iconic blue track and white supports as you walk under it in the middle of the midway. Red trains create the all-American color scheme inspired by the U.S. Bicentennial in 1976, the year the ride opened. Looking through the eye of the inversions that gives it its name can give you a taste of the teeth-clenching courage needed to ride. Corkscrew was the first coaster in the world that featured three inversions and it hasn’t looked back since. Strap in and brace yourself, because this steel track show no mercy. It’ll turn you up, down, around, inside out and back again. After that first loop, it’ll take your nerves of steel and push them to the limit. Gravity has no bounds as you flip upside down going 38 m.p.h. and make eye contact with the park goers below. Once you’re in, you’ll never look at Cedar Point’s midway the same again.
